BRAZOS COUNTY, Texas -- More than 105,000 property tax bills are expected to be mailed to Brazos County property owners this week according to Brazos County Tax Assessor-Collector Kristeen Roe.
The Tax Office provides consolidated tax billing for all properties located within Brazos County. Your tax bill will include the taxes for a combination of taxing jurisdictions.
When received, property owners should review the bill to make sure it is the correct property, and any exemptions or special appraisals are included.
Taxpayers that have several properties should verify that they have received a statement for each property they own.
Failure to receive a bill does not release or lessen a taxpayers’ liability for the tax or penalty and interest for late payment.
The tax statement design is the same as before, and taxpayers should refer to the payment information and options listed on the reverse side. The deadline for 2016 property tax payment is January 31, 2017.
Brazos County property owners are reminded that the tax office is no longer located in downtown Bryan. Directions to the new tax office address, 4151 County Park Ct., Bryan, TX, 77802. A map showing the location of the tax office can be found on the tax office website by clicking on the address link at www.brazostax.org . Taxpayers are encouraged to verify all saved banking information for the correct mailing address.
Tax payments can be mailed or made in person at the Brazos County Tax office located at 4151 County Park Ct., Bryan, TX, 77802. A drop box is available in the lobby of the tax office for payments by check or money order for those who don’t wish to wait for a receipt.
Taxpayers may want to take advantage of the drive through windows when paying their taxes. Tax statements or property ID numbers for each property will be required to pay at the drive through window, and the number of accounts to be paid is limited to no more than 10 per customer.
A secure payment drop safe is located on the east side of the building in drive through lane number 1. Taxpayers should exit their vehicle and insert payments at the top of the unit. The drop safe does not accept large envelopes. All payments are removed at the end of the business day, and any payments dropped after 5:00 PM will be credited the following business day.
2016 tax year information is already available on the Brazos County Tax Office website at www.brazostax.org. Records can be searched by name, address, account number or DBA. Links are available from the website to Chase Pay Connexion for internet payment of taxes by debit card, credit card or e-check. Convenience fees apply for these services. The fee amounts are made available to the taxpayer prior to completing the transaction. Credit card payment of taxes can also be made over the telephone by dialing 1-844-550-8208.
